North America plays hosts to thousands of species of birds in a wonderful range of habitats, many of which are unspoiled. From the far north of Canada to the very south of Mexico a bird watching holiday to north America will give you the chance to see some amazing wildlife.

Bald Eagle

For bird enthusiasts, no trip to the United States is complete without a glimpse of America’s most famous bird, the bald eagle, whose range covers most of North America from the bayous of Louisiana to the deciduous forests of New England. The US is also home to a number of endemic species including the lesser prairie-chicken, the pelagic cormorant, the Carolina chickadee and the Florida scrub-jay.

Although Canada doesn’t support any endemic species of birds, it is a beautiful place to go to spot birds in spectacular scenery. While you’re away take the opportunity to look out for other wildlife including Canada’s very own Big Five; moose, elks, wolves, deer and bears.

With a wide variety of habitats, climates and ecosystems Mexico has more species of birds than the US and Canada combined. On a trip to Mexico look out for hawks, macaws, hummingbirds, owls as well as coastal birds including flamingos, pelicans, cormorants and frigatebirds.

For a gentler way of life a holiday in the Caribbean is guaranteed to be relaxing. You could either choose to stay on one of the 28 island nations or island hop to be in with a chance of seeing a greater variety of birds and wildlife. There’s something for every bird lover here, from hummingbirds, boobies, cuckoos, doves, spoonbills and flycatchers.

With a lodge-based tour we can set the pace, enjoy full days on the water for whale-watching and glacier-gazing, and come back to our most comfortable digs for the night. On other days we keep our feet on land as we can hike coastal trails, peek into tide-pools, identify the myriad wildflowers, and search for breeding birds. We offer some options, such as time to paddle quieter waters in sea-kayaks; even a kayak trip with the whales! We don’t ignore some of the region’s classic sites, moving on from Gustavus hopefully with our wilderness and wildlife fill.
